This is all kinds of nuts…From The Telegraph (emphasis in bold is mine):
If Donald Trump is ambivalent about the Ku Klux Klan and other fringe groups he has been linked with, he can rest assured that – for some, at least – the feeling is mutual.
Will Quigg, a grand dragon of the Klan’s California chapter and responsible for recruitment in the western United States, is less keen to give Mr Trump the dubious benefit of his support.
“We want Hillary Clinton to win,” Mr Quigg told The Telegraph. “She is telling everybody one thing, but she has a hidden agenda. She’s telling everybody what they want to hear so she can get elected, because she’s Bill Clinton’s wife, she’s close to the Bushes. [But] once she’s in the presidency, she’s going to come out and her true colours are going to show…
Mr Quigg warmly endorsed the Republican candidate’s plan to ban Muslims from the US and to expel 11 million illegal immigrants.
Asked why he was not therefore supporting Mr Trump, Mr Quigg replied: “We don’t like his hair. We think it’s a toupee. He won’t do what he says he will do. He says he’s going to build a 20-foot high fence along with border with Mexico and make them pay. How’s he going to do that?”
This silliness makes about as much sense as holding a KKK rally in Southern California, (which is where the video below takes place), and that makes about as much sense has being in the Klan at all. The endorsement is surely as unwelcome for her as it is for Trump, and it certainly makes a myth of the notion that the Klan is united on who they are supporting.
Here’s some video from the rally. Quigg’s declaration of support for Hillary Clinton comes around the 5:47 mark, and the video is not-so mysteriously cut quickly to the next “scene.” It’s a wonder it was allowed into evidence (so to speak) at all.
